While the Atheist Activist community sells itself as a group of people who place priority on evidence and critical thinking, the community instead places priority on emotion that thrives by peddling propaganda and negative stereotypes about religious people. Activist Hemant Mehta effectively admitted this when offering advice on how to be an atheist activist by encouraging atheist journalists to “Write about problems within the church. Tell stories about people who deal with religious oppression.” In other words, employ the propagandistic technique of cherry picking, which is not hard to do thanks to the internet’s ability to record every infraction or outrageous claim that occurs around the entire globe.
Mehta and his team of propagandists, of course, rely heavily on this technique as fodder for their popular activist atheist blog deceptively named, “The Friendly Atheist.” For example, in a recent thread, Mehta posted a blog entry entitled: Triple-Murder Suspect Told Police He Didn’t “Know Where God Put” Victim’s Body. I guess the message there is that if you become a Christian, you’ll end up becoming a murderer who eats parts of his victims.
To help us all understand how this propagandistic cherry picking works, imagine of this atheist activist approach was used against another large group of people – educators. What if I were to create a blog that sought to demonize educators? Let’s call it, “Teacher! Leave Those Kids Alone!” Would it be hard to follow Mehta’s advice and regularly find stories that put teachers in a bad light? Not at all. Let’s say, for example, my anti-teacher blog was trying to sell the message that teachers can’t be trusted around children. One way to sell that message would be to post, on a fairly regular basis, stories about teachers being arrested for sexual misconduct with their students. And then we could go from there. Thanks to the internet, let me show you how easy it would be.
A prep school math teacher in North Carolina was arrested for having inappropriate sexual contact with three male students, police said.
A former middle school teacher wept and repeatedly rocked from side to side Thursday as he stood before a Snohomish County Superior Court judge to face punishment for a sexually charged online conversation with a stranger he thought was a 15-year-old girl.
Bryson Condotta, 35, had been a history teacher at Alderwood Middle School in the Edmonds School District. He resigned early this year and voluntarily surrendered his state teaching credentials after he was caught in a September sting dubbed Operation Anvil.
Virginia Hinckley, the former St. Johns County teacher accused of having sex with a student, has been sentenced to six months in jail and will have to register as a sex offender.
A former Peoria Unified School District teacher has admitted to engaging in sexual conduct with an underage student.
Brian Woolsey pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual conduct with a minor and two counts of attempted sexual conduct with a minor Tuesday in Maricopa County Superior Court.
A former special education teacher’s aide in New York state is accused of having sex with a 15-year-old male student she met while at work, authorities tell PEOPLE.
Alexandra Culhane, 24, was arrested and charged Monday with third-degree felony rape and third-degree felony criminal sex act. Both felonies can carry sentences of up to four years in prison.
Schraufnagel, 42, a New Jersey resident, pleaded guilty in November to two misdemeanor charges of endangering the welfare of a child, and one misdemeanor count of sexual abuse. He admitted to abusing three of his 15-year-old students while he was a speech and drama teacher at Greeley between 2011 and 2015.
Well, that would have been enough for a week’s worth of anti-teacher actvist blog entries.
